Galway City East

Owen Hanley is driven and enthusiastic to help create a bold, new vision for Galway city that puts people first. The Eastside has been deprived of ambitious public representation that supports communities, delivers solutions, and cares about people.<

Owen is a Galway native who recently completed his Bachelor Degree in English, Sociology & Politics, and over the summer finished his Masters in Human Rights Law.

Owen has not only studied and understands the socio-economic factors that impact people’s lives but as a child of austerity he knows the cost of regressive politics.

A progressive activist from a young age Owen Hanley has campaigned for gender equality, third level funding, an end to the housing crisis, the re-election of Michael D. Higgins, and repeal of the 8th amendment.

“The next 5-year council term will define Galway for the next 50. We will sleep-walk our way to a sprawling, choked-up, and ugly metro or we can become a modern and unique European city.”
